  1. Line a slice tin with baking paper.
  2. For the base, whiz together all the base ingredients in a food processor, until well combined. 
  3. Press the mixture into the slice tin and pop it in the freezer.
  4. For the raspberry layer, pop raspberries in a small pan over a medium heat and squash them with the back of a spoon. 
  1. Add the chia seeds, water, rice malt syrup and coconut oil, and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and allow mixture to simmer, stirring regularly. The mixture will thicken as the chia seeds absorb the liquid.
  2. Once the mixture has thickened into a paste, remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly, and then spread it over the base. Place the slice back in the freezer.
  3. For the chocolate topping, melt the cacao butter and coconut oil in a double boiler, stirring to combine.
  4. Once melted, add vanilla and maple syrup, and mix well. 
  5. Remove slice from freezer and pour the chocolate over the top. 
  6. Pop slice in the fridge for a few hours to set. 
  7. Once set, leave at room temperature for a few minutes and then slice into bars.
